Holly River Hustle 5K Run and Walk

Join us for the fourth annual Holly River Hustle 5k Run/Walk. The 3.1 mile run is an out-and-back course and starts at 10 a.m. Register by August 17 via mail or at the park office to receive a T-shirt. Early registration is $15 for adults and $10 for anyone younger than 18. Registration after August 17 is $20 and $15, respectively. Entry forms and registration are available at the park office.

This race is a fund-raiser to support projects at the park funded by the Holly River State Park Foundation. Awards are given to the top three male and female racers, and in each age group. All participants are entered into a random drawing for door prizes. This race is one of many events during the Holly River Festival, also hosted by the Holly River Foundation.

The course is almost all on the Pickens road, a gravel road, and there will be traffic control. It begins along the blacktopped road in front of the picnic shelter (old pavilion) diagonally across from the park office/restaurant. It is an out and back course completely inside Holly River State Park’s boundaries. It passes several small streams along the way, and is forested and shaded along the entire route. It is gradually uphill for the first half, then downhill on the way back, making for a nice, fast finish! Course climbs approximately 225 feet in 1.55 miles then descends. Shortly before the turnaround point, there is a water station set up.
